162. Mary (Molly) CUNNINGHAM (Richard (Richie Bryan) CUNNINGHAM , Johanna HUDSON , Richard , William? , William ) was born on 10 Mar 1893 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 12 Mar 1893 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died on 22 Jul 1976 in Tralee, Co. Kerry. She was buried in Ahavoher Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Molly's baptismal sponsors were William O'Connor and Mary O'Connor.

After they married, Jim and Molly lived on the Dore family farm in the townland of Moyvane South (Molly's mother was a Dore) in the parish of Moyvane. Jim was a skilled farmer. He used to kill his own and his neighbours' pigs. He also had great expertise with cattle, and was a hard worker, managing to increase the capacity of the farm from 18 to 40 milch cows, with the assistance in later years of his son Dick and daughter Bridie.   

There is a family story about Jim about the time he was taking a load of turf from Ballygoughlin to Glin using an unbroken horse; he refused to take holy water from his sister Babe on setting out, only to suffer a fall and a broken leg on the journey, following which he developed a respect for holy water!

Mary married James (Jim) STACK, son of Thomas (Tom) STACK and Ellen (Ellie) SHANAHAN, in Apr 1921. James was born on 3 Sep 1896 in Ballygoughlin, Glin, Co. Limerick. He died on 17 Jul 1965 in Moyvane South, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was buried in Murhur Cemetery, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

I am told of a J.D. Keane who was born in Pilgrim Hill, Duagh to Daniel Keane and his second wife, Johanna McCarthy (whom he married in 1884). This is likely to be our J.D. above. Further information on the Keane family of Pilgrim Hill (who had origins in Ballygrennan, Listowel) is available in Kevin O'Connor's book 'The Descendants of the O'Connors of Carrigafoyle Stemming from the Datheenachs Line' (2006).

174. Mary Anne (Mainanne) O'CONNOR (Johanna CUNNINGHAM , Johanna HUDSON , Richard , William? , William ) was born on 6 Apr 1874 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 9 Apr 1874 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died on 11 Sep 1951 in Clounprohus, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was buried in St. Michael's Cemetery, Listowel, Co. Kerry.

The sponsors at Mainanne's baptism were (what appears to be) John Cunningham and Ellen Connor.

Mainanne was also known as Muddy.

Mary married William (Bill) FINUCANE, son of Patrick FINUCANE and Catherine WALSH, on 4 Feb 1899 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. William was born about 30 Mar 1869 in Clounprohus, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was christened on 1 Apr 1869 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He died on 23 Sep 1957 in Clounprohus, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. He was buried in St. Michael's Cemetery, Listowel, Co. Kerry.

I have been told by one family source that Bill was one of the "Gale Bridge Finucanes" of Cuss, Moyvane, although he farmed in Clounprohus where he was born. There is an entry in Griffith's Valuation (carried out in 1851 for North Kerry) for a John Finucane of Clounprohus. I think it likely that John and Bill were related, perhaps father and son. Another family source has told me Bill was a brother of Michael Finucane of Gale Bridge, who is listed elsewhere on this website (his son Jim having married my relative Nellie Lyons). However, I have been unable to verify this. If anyone has any information on the connection between Bill and Michael I would be very grateful if you would get in touch. Please email Helen@HelensFamilyTrees.

It appears that Bill inherited the famly farm, which is srprising as he had older brothers.

Note that there is no documented blood connection between Bill and his wife's great-grandmother, Margaret Finucane (who married Richard Hudson). However, I have been told by Finucane family researcher Bill Hudson that the Finucanes of Kilcolgan, near Tarbert, are related to Margaret ("fourth cousins of some type") and are very distantly related to Bill, although the exact connection to Bill isn't known.
